Let’s back to topic. “Heaven Door” is a giant hole in the top of the Tianmen Mountain. This is one of the most beautiful tourism places in Hunan Province, China. This tourist attraction had opened since 2001 and now opened to foreign tourists from around the world. To get to these locations can use the cable car as far as 7.3 kilometers traveled about a half hour drive. If you had read my hub which title, “The Most Extreme Cable Car in the World”, you may know how high and so scary this cable car. But don’t worry, all your fears will be paid with amazing and beautiful scenery among the forest and rock mountain during the trip. I’ll add more pictures related with Hunan cable car.

Heaven door is an oval hole pointing upward, with the height about 131.5 meters, width of 57 meters and the depth reaches 60 meters. The mouth of this door is through the top of the mountain, so it looks like a beautiful giant hole. Heaven door can also be reached by walking up the tens of thousands of steps on the slopes of the rocky mountain. In addition, now it is also completed with a new roadway that directly approaching the peak. But we should be careful while crossing the mountain, because the new road was full of sharp bends beside the steep ravine. In winter, the tourist will pass through the snowy mountain range. The beauty of this place in winter can be seen in the pictures below.
When the winter comes
Especially in winter, the road is forbidden for cars to pass through Heaven Door, because the condition of roads is covered with snow which become very slippery which can cause fatal accidents. The tourists also suggested by using one-way cable car can contain up to 20 people. This cable car will go through a route with a beautiful scenery and fascinating journey along the rope hanging from the rail. They can feel minute by minute of surprising moment along 7.3 kilometers.
Based on the tourism agent, the largest foreign tourists is come from Korea with the total foreign tourists reached 800 thousand people per year. Hunan Provincial Government as the manager of the "Heaven Door" continues to promote the new attraction to the world by direct invite the leaders of travel agents to come and visit this area. For me this hub is like a continue for my previous hub about travel. I hope you'll be entertained with this information and you want to put this place on your travel list.
